Description

12 years ago
User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Win98; en-US; rv:1.8.1.2pre) Gecko/20070111 SeaMonkey/1.1
Build Identifier:  SeaMonkey/1.1

I do not want any junk mail filtering.  Unchecking Junk mail both in preferences and in each account setup still allows some messages to be flagged as possible Junk.  Seems random - less that 5% of messages get a flag (I get well over 100 messages per day).  Some junk flags today seemed confined to asking about the attachment.

Unchecking junk controls on SM 1.07 and earlier worked fine.

Junk flag - appears only for attachements.

Similar to Bug 213758 but Most messages do not get flagged as Junk.

Recent appearances of Junk flag have focused on attachments.  See attached screen capture.

John, that screen shot doesn't show junk status at all.  It shows that the message contains remote content -- typically, an <img> in the HTML message body, where the actual image data resides on a server somewhere.  Such content is normally blocked as an anti-spam measure, but it doesn't mean spam in and of itself.  If the message had actually been detected as junk, the banner across the top of the message would read "Thunderbird thinks this message is junk."

In the thread pane (list of messages), the junk status is further indicated by an icon in the "junk" column -- are you seeing those icons turned on?

=> John, that screen shot doesn't show junk status at all.

That screen shows that your programming interjects junk controls
when I have set options to ignore all junk controls.

=> that the message contains remote content -- typically, an <img> in
=> the HTML message body, where the actual image data resides on a
=> server somewhere.

An error in the Junk Mail Notice - It assumes the attachments are
still on the server but not so - when I get my mail, I download the
complete message including all attachments.  And I have set
"View|Show Attachments In Line" - I want to see them without
interference.


=> In the thread pane (list of messages), the junk status is further
=> indicated by an icon in the "junk" column -- are you seeing those
=> icons turned on?

Consistent with my desire to not be bothered by Junk/anti-spam
controls, I do not turn on the junk icon in the thread pane.

Note: in contrast to the earlier Bug #213758, I do not see any junk
flags on messages, just the attachments.  Good, so far!  {g}

I did not see any Junk flags prior to SM 1.1 - 1.07 and before were
clean.  (I notice that 1.1 added the ability to set junk controls
per mail address.)

Unchecking the Block Images stops all the unwanted Junk Flags. Thanks!
